Default How stable is a 2000 honda accord lx?

I'm getting a 2000 honda accord lx (vtec engine)...how well does it perform in wet weather? Reason why I ask is because I have a 88' honda accord dx currently and it does not do very well in wet weather..wants to hydroplane.

If your Accord isn't good in the rain, you have crappy tires on it. Go to tirerack.com and check the tires for that car, look at the ratings and read the reviews. I have an Accord (2005), the OEM Michelins are so so in the rain, but my winter tires (Hankook) are much better, so when the Michelins are shot, I'll get something else. No matter how the suspension is designed, the tires are the most important part of your cars handling, especially in poor weather. It's the only part of your car that makes contact with the road!One additional point - make sure your car is aligned properly. Even great rain tires won't work well if their not meeting the road as designed.

If your car not good in the rain your car have to change the suspension.This car's suspension is a little soft.

I have to totally agree with the other answers, but I have a 2000 Honda Civic EX and it is fabulous. Then again I take great care of it, so that's probably why it runs so well for me

Our family has three Honda products, two are sedans, an '00 Accord LX V6, and an '06 TL. IMO, Honda did an excellent job in setting up the chassis & suspension on this car...it seem well balanced. Personally, I tend to get a bit 'spirited' with the car on So Cal highways. The car has never given me any problems in inliment weather. I run Michellin Harmony tires...great all-around tire for this car.

wow wow wow suspension lets not get ahead of our self's here.first of all the accords are very good cars and your problem sounds like your tires there are tires that make to much nosie or that hydroplane email me and i will get the brand that my brother in law has on his 99 accord coupe and next time say what kind of tires you have like performance or all seasons tires couse depending on the style that will be the type of performance you will get.

any vehicle can handle poorly in wet weather. the 2000 accord is much bigger and heavier and has bigger wheels so it will definitely handle better. what is the condition of your 88's tires? maybe they are bald?
